Ukraine – Post-conflict reconstruction in Ukraine
The Russian invasion of Ukraine launched the largest war in Europe since World War II, with devastating and lasting humanitarian and economic consequences, which not only include the loss of human life and the destruction of local infrastructure, but also have an extremely negative impact on the global economy and affect mass migration of people within and outside Ukraine. The country should be rebuilt at all levels and in all areas, and provide development and perspective for the return of the population and the creation of jobs for the country to survive and develop into a successful society.
International cooperation between local administrations proved to be a positive during the war, as the partner local communities from abroad were the first to support Ukraine and Ukrainian municipalities. In the post-war period, Ukrainian municipalities will face challenges that could be more easily overcome in cooperation with foreign partner municipalities, and the Ministry in charge of local self-government in Ukraine also expresses its support for such cooperation.
The aim of the project is to strengthen the capacity of Ukrainian hromadas (municipalities) in starting the projects of post-conflict reconstruction in their local hromadas. Slovenia will share its knowledge and good practices that will help Ukraine develop projects that will start the reconstruction process on the local level.
